Now that I have worn them alot these are definitely my favorite boots, first off, they are super warm, I don't usually have a problem with cold feet while I'm moving at a good pace so unless I'm snowshoing, I probably won't wear these boots in temps. over 25 degrees. The first time I wore them, it was like they were already broken in, they are very comfortable. I actually bought these specifically for snowshoing and they are awesome. I also wear them for duty on a rescue squad and they do a good job.

What is the temperature rating for the Nytro boot?
They are rated for -12 F
Thanks, Kat. where did you see that info?
I would agree with that rating. Nice Boot!
Warm and dang tough
I have the men's version Nytro. After doing quite a bit of research on winter boots, and trying on several, I narrowed my choices down to the Keen Summit, Patagonia DAS and Garmont Momentum Snow. I really liked the fit of the Keen and Garmont, but went with the Nytro not only because it fit great, but seemed a bit more supportive/stiffer than the others. I plan to wear with strap on crampons and ice spikes when needed. Other than that, they'll be an all purpose winter book for snowshoeing and hiking. They are super warm: The coldest I have used them is 8 degrees at this point, but I believe they'll go down to possibly neg 5 or so. Fit is awesome out-of-the-box! And one of the best attributes for me is their toughness...they really seem tough! I've beat on them for a few trips now and can't see any wear at all. Like other folks have said, they do run about a quarter size big. I normally wear an 11.5 street shoe and got a 12, but could have gone with an 11.5, even with a Superfeet and mid weight socks. I recommend!
The best boots I've owned
I usually have to go up a 1/2 size in snow boots, but didn't have to in these boots. They are nice & roomy so you can wear your wool socks and be very comfortable. I wear the boots for hiking and snowshoeing. I have been out walking in below zero temps and my feet still stay nice & toasty.
They aren't "high" fashion, but who cares if you can stay out in the freezing cold for hours and not have cold feet.
Well worth the money!
Size runs large.
I normally wear a 7 1/2 M shoe/boot. Though this boot is high quality material and name brand, it runs wide and long. Seems to fit a whole size larger than normal. My foot had way too much room in this loose fit (both in forefoot box and length). Also looks large and clunky (masculine) compared to similar style in other brands.
